Beauty and wellness roundup
Although I haven't posted in A MINUTE, my love for clean beauty, wellness and health hasn't changed. This past year was full of wellness discoveries, clean beauty wonders and having patience with learning new routines.
So, after much deliberation, here's the roundup.
Best of beauty OVERALL
- Glossier -
I tried a lot of makeup in 2017. I found new clean beauty stores around the world and tested products from all of them. I continued to work with different brands and was gifted all different types of makeup. But when I look into my makeup bag...it's 80% Glossier. So, congrats Glossier, it's you.

Best BEDTIME ritual
- HEADSPACE -
Mediation made easy. You can start with a free trial, but I highly recommend paying for the yearly subscription. The app is well organized with different categories like creativity, stress, sleep et cetera. The best part is that I've actually seen improvement.
Best Blush & Bronzer duo
- KJAER WIES & LILYLOLO-
Blush and bronzer have been the very last things that I've switched over to non-toxic products, because I'm picky about them!! And a cream blush, who am I? Link for KJAER WIES blush, Link for LILYLOLO bronzer.
Best THING I DID FOR MY BODY
- PARSLEY HEALTHY -
I've written about Parsley before, but this year, I decided to use them to their full potential. They have helped me immensely in balancing my hormones, increasing B-12, and finding out the little things that no doctor has ever taken the time to do. They are the holistic doctor of everyones dreams.
BEST CLEAN PRODUCT FIND
- NATIVE DEODORANT -
Best clean beauty store
- LEMON LAINE, TN -
Having a boyfriend in Nashville is paying off. Lemon Laine is beautiful and the most well curated clean beauty store I've ever seen. It even has an OIL BAR, where you make your own oil that's suited for you skin. I've spent way too much money here.
Best PRODUCT for YOUR face
- DRUNK ELEPHANT SUKARI BABYFACIAL -
Major shoutout to Christine Taffe for showing me this life changing product. Worth the $$$. It comes with a night oil as well to use after that is delectable. Here it is!
Best HEALTHY RECIPE
- MINIMALIST BAKER, KALE SALAD -
I've made the salad a lot. I even brought it to my non-vegan boyfriend's family's Thanksgiving and it was a hit. Protein, fat, fiber, greens, mmm, mmm, MM.

- THE CLASS BY TARYN TOOMEY -
Although I only did this once, it had a lasting effect. You'll sweat, you'll yell (literally), you'll pause and you'll be better because of it. I plan on incorporating this class A LOT more in 2018.
